House panel approves budget measure that advances tax reform
By David Morgan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives took a new step toward tax reform legislation on Wednesday by approving a fiscal 2018 budget resolution that would allow the Senate to pass a sweeping tax code overhaul without Democratic support. The House Budget Committee voted 22-14 along party lines to send the measure to the floor of the House for consideration by the full chamber, a day after the $4 trillion spending blueprint was unveiled. Democrats oppose the Republican budget and Republican plans for a tax reform bill that is likely to offer steep tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy.

Royal Navy scrambles to shadow Chinese warships in English Channel as they head to Baltics for first war games with Russia
The Royal Navy scrambled a warship to shadow a Chinese flotilla as it steamed through the English Channel en route to meet Russian vessels for manoeuvres in the Baltic Sea. The trio of Chinese warships passed through the Strait of Dover under the watch of the HMS Richmond, a Type 23 frigate, at the weekend. They then headed across the North Sea, where they were spotted being escorted by Dutch vessels earlier this week ahead of manoeuvres with Vladimir Putin?s navy which begin on Friday. China?s state-run Global Times newspaper said on Tuesday that the 052D, the country?s ?most advanced guided-missile destroyer?, was taking part in the week-long joint drills. The Chinese warships later headed through Dutch waters on their way to the Baltic Credit: Rob Verkerk The ship ?is equipped with phased array radar and a vertical launching system?, the newspaper said. Russian media say ten ships will take part in the first phase of the exercise, joined by more than 10 aircraft and helicopters. Route of Chinese warships The drills mark the first occasion that Chinese warships have ever carried out manoeuvres in the strategically important Baltic Sea. The People?s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy had just completed exercises in the Mediterranean, another show of strength from Beijing as it rapidly expands its military reach across the globe. The drills with Russia mark the first occasion that Chinese warships have ever carried out manoeuvres in the strategically important Baltic Sea Credit: Rob Verkerk Professor Ni Lexiong, a Shanghai-based military expert, told The Telegraph the Baltic Sea drills were aimed at Nato, but were being carried out in response to drills that were recently staged by the US, India and Japan in the Indian Ocean, which were directed towards China. ?China and Russia have pledged to enhance their strategic relationship by regularly staging military drills,? said Prof Ni, director of the Shanghai University of Political Science and Law?s Sea Power and Defence Policy Research Institute. ?China also has its own plans,? he added. ?Which is to show the world that it is a major naval power.? A Chinese naval fleet held a military exercise with the Russian navy in St Petersburg and Kaliningrad last month. The two countries have held joint drills every year since 2012, and military officials in China said this year?s manoeuvres will focus on ?joint rescue efforts and protecting cargo vessels?. China and Russia both have veto powers on the UN Security Council, and regularly vote together on major issues such as the crisis in Syria. This position often puts them at odds with the United States and Western Europe.

MH370 search reveals hidden undersea world
The painstaking search for missing flight MH370 has uncovered a previously unknown undersea world of volcanoes, deep valleys and soaring ridges, according to detailed maps released by Australia. Although no trace of the Malaysia Airlines plane was found during the search in the southern Indian Ocean -- the most expensive ever of its kind -- large volumes of data showing a detailed picture of the sea floor had to be collected to guide the probe. "It is estimated that only 10 to 15 percent of the world's oceans have been surveyed with the kind of technology used in the search for MH370," Geoscience Australia's environmental geoscience chief Stuart Minchin said late Wednesday.
